I remember lining up all day in Tampa to see the Phantom Menace on opening day. The conditions at the theater were terrible: Broken AC, blurry lens, and a terrible crowd. I ended up leaving the theater feeling a bit drained, like someone had siphoned the “force” right out of me. The movie wasn’t what I was expecting, but there was one thing I loved about the phantom menace and that was Liam Neeson’s portrayal of Qui-Gon Jin.
By the time you reach your 30s you’ve probably lost someone close to you in an automobile accident. Statistics can really suck. For me, it was my grandfather when I was about 12 years old. My friends and family have always teased me about being a slow and cautious driver, but the event of my grandfathers death shook me enough to take driving very seriously. Ryan Dunn may have done some irresponsible things that led to his death, but at the end of the day he seemed to be a good guy that made a bad decision (don’t we all?). Check out this video done as a tribute to Ryan Dunn by the folks at Dickhouse (Jackass, Wild Boyz etc..). We’re sincerely sorry for your loss.
